READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
Philanthropist Cindy McCain sat down with Piers Morgan last night to talk politics and hot topics. With the country still reeling from Rush Limbaugh's "slut" and "prostitute" comments a week ago, (more than 10 advertisers have withdrawn since the incident) McCain joined the camp of those denouncing the radio host:
"I was horribly offended," she said. "He does not speak for the Republican party. He does not run the party. How can you as a country be the beacon of hope and light around the world if we can not respect our own?"
Around the same time Limbaugh drew the public ire for his remarks, actor Kirk Cameron found himself drawing negativity for anti-gay statements he made on Friday's airing of "Piers Morgan Tonight."
While McCain didn't agree with Cameron's comments, she did suggest the incident could become a teaching moment: "It's a lesson in tolerance. Isn't it wonderful here that we can agree to disagree?"
As the face-to-face sit down with the conservative businesswoman continued, the topic turned to a new internet video, "KONY 2012", which has quickly gone viral in it's effort to overthrow Ugandan guerrilla group leader Josephy Kony. Since its launch by the non-government organization "Invisible Children," the video has received more than 25 million hits, and McCain endorses the efforts, calling Kony "the worst kind of human being," adding: "I am so glad that this issue is taking off."
